About Us 

My wife Carol and I held our first Elvis Presley convention in Memphis, Tennessee back in August of 1992 at the Ramada Inn on Brooks Road. Our show has gone through a few name changes throughout the years beginning with the Elvis For Everyone Convention, then ELVIS CON and now the Collecting The King Show (named after the column I have been writing in ELVIS - THE MAGAZINE). We started the show with the idea of providing a place where Elvis collectors could go to buy, sell and trade Elvis Presley records & memorabilia with dealers from around the country and we have been fortunate to have become the longest running show in Memphis during Elvis Week. 

I’ve been an Elvis fan my whole life and an avid collector of Elvis’ records and memorabilia since 1980. Throughout the years, my love for Elvis and his music has led me in many directions. In the early 1990’s, I started my own business Soundz Good Records specializing in Elvis records and memorabilia. Soon thereafter, Jerry Osborne approached me about working as Associate Editor for the fourth edition of his popular Presleyana record & memorabilia price guide. Three editions later, I am once again in the same position for Presleyana VI and now preparing updates for the next edition due in 2012.

After a few years of writing a column for a small Internet Elvis fan site, I was asked by Darwin Lamm, the editor of ELVIS - THE MAGAZINE, to submit one of my Collecting The King columns (where I write about the different aspects of collecting Elvis memorabilia) for publication in his magazine. In addition, I started writing another column called Defending The King where I take a stand as an Elvis Fan in support of Elvis' music legacy and his image in the 21st Century. Over 50 columns and many years later, I am proud to be a regular writer and contributor to the magazine.

This year the Collecting The King Show 2009 moved to its new location at the luxurious Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis. There we plan to continue to provide a place where not only Elvis collectors can go to find rare records and collectibles, but will be broadening the show to include dealers of other 50's and 60's rock-n-roll artists as well.

Be sure to include our show in your agenda during your visit to Elvis Week! For further information about future shows or dealer tables contact us directly by emailing sndzgood@aol.com. Carol and I look forward to seeing you there!
